Barcelona and Liverpool are currently in negotiations in London over a deal that would see Luis Suarez move to the Nou Camp according to the BBC.

Officials from both clubs are in talks today as the disgraced Uruguayan appears to edge closer to an Anfield exit though the Merseyside outfit are not prepared to listen to offers of less than £80m.

The La Liga side are apparently willing to offer £60m plus the addition of Chilean international Alexis Sanchez and this may be an offer that is amenable to Liverpool though the player himself is yet to confirm his interest in such a switch.

Suarez issued a public apology for his biting of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini, an apology that Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has now commented on, stating:

“Suarez has shown he is humble enough to admit an error, which is very important.

“Everyone knows Luis is an excellent player, everyone knows last season he played in various positions in attack, but everyone also knows he is a Liverpool player.”

In what appears part of a long term plan to develop links between Barcelona and Suarez new signing Ivan Rakitic has weighed in with a glowing assessment of the forward:

“The fact he has had the character and the strength to go in front of everyone and say sorry says a lot about him as a person.

“Not every person has that strength to admit they have done something stupid.

“Regardless of whether the club signs him or not, his quality is unquestionable.”

Liverpool had seemingly been keen on retaining Suarez prior to this latest unsavoury incident but even if they do consider offers for their prized asset they are clearly not willing to accept cut-price offers, even though the striker is currently serving a four month ban from the game.
